For my Sweets: REDxGOLD

Red and gold is possibly my favorite color combination. It's elegant, vibrant and it can read as something military in a flashy 18th century sort of way.

Can you guess what sort of sweet she is? A Napoleon! I know it doesn't really look like a napoleon at all but I really love making things with a military style. And I just had to do something with this fantastic gold brocade. Under the jacket the dress has a very low scoop neck that is just perfect for setting off your favorite blouse.

The blouse is one of my favorites. The ruffle at the neck frames the face is such a delicate way, and the ruffles cuffs make hands look so dainty! I like the very feminine blouse with the more severe dress and jacket too.

The Jacket is a very fine 100% wool twill and is lined with silk. My obsession with peplums is showing again here. I love those elegant 18th century riding suits. I was hoping to bring something like that to mind with this outfit.

I hope you guys like this outfit too~!


  1. Ohhh my goodness that's beautiful!~ I defiantly agree, I love red and gold as well!~ And that outfit is stunning! Since there's so much Rococo, I would have never thought to mix Lolita with a newer French colonial style~
